A male kitten should be neutered between 4 – 6 weeks of age. Females can be spayed at any time, but you may wish to wait until the first estrus cycle occurs (approximately 14 days after ovulation). If your cat is not yet able to go into heat, she will usually develop with her second or third season. This means that if she does get pregnant when she is in her sixth season, it will most likely be by accident and not with your consent. By waiting until they are ready for their spay/neuter surgery before breeding them would help decrease the number of unwanted litters produced by unplanned pregnancies.
Have our cats been tested? Is there a cost involved?
Our cats have all been tested negative for FIV-1 (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), FeLV (Feline Leukemia) & FELV (Feline Enteritis Viruses). No test required! We appreciate everyone’s support in helping us keep these beautiful animals out of shelters and rescue groups; please do not ask pet owners to cover costs associated with testing since we feel this goes against the purpose of rescuing pets from getting put down at local shelters because no one wanted them anymore or were told they had too many kittens/cats under their care. Instead, we want people who love these lovely little creatures to adopt them instead so they can live happy lives without having to find homes for unwanted animals due to overcrowding or other issues on their part
